Marvel Reveals First Look at Surtur’s Dragon from ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ in ‘Guardians’ Disney Ride Update
Cate Blanchett‘s Hela isn’t the only villain Thor will have to face in Ragnarok. The Comic-Con trailer for the Taika Waititi film revealed two more Marvel bad guys that Thor and the Hulk will take on in the new movie: Fenris Wolf and Surtur. The trailer showed Mark Ruffalo’s green-skinned superhero with his head inside the mouth of the monstrous wolf and jumping into a blaze to fight the fiery demon. But Surtur will also have some help from a dragon, and now we have our first look at the beast.
Yesterday, Marvel unveiled a look at Surtur’s dragon in an announcement for a Halloween update of Disneyland’s Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! ride at California Adventure. During the park’s Halloween-themed festivities, the Guardians ride at The Collector’s Fortress will include an additional adventure called Monsters After Dark.
During the ride, which will pick up right after the events of Mission: BREAKOUT!, Rocket recuses Baby Groot after the Guardians have left the cute branch creature behind – how do you leave Groot behind? Unacceptable! During the rescue mission, you’ll run into Surtur’s Fire Dragon, who Marvel confirmed will appear in Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok. Here’s the image from the studio, featuring Rocket and Baby Groot:
If you’re lucky enough to visit California Adventure during the Halloween season, you’ll get an early look at the fiery dragon. If not, you’ll have to wait until Ragnarok, which also stars Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, and Karl Urban, hits theaters November 3.
